100% real space alien from Roswell International UFO Museum & Research Center
Paul Krugman has another brilliant idea. He wants more government spending SO BAD, he’s asking scientists to fake an invasion by space aliens and then tell the government we need high speed rail to defend ourselves. To you and me it sounds stupid, but to Norwegians and Swedes it probably sounds like another Nobel Prize for Krugman.

This of course is a perfectly reasonable idea to the loons on the left.

This idea is worth two, maybe three Nobels. Just plain brilliant.

Trouble is, the Japanese have been doing this for twenty plus years now – building bridges to nowhere, highways to nowhere and nowheres to nowhere – and their economy has not been able to get out of its own way for all of that time. They’ve relied on Keynsian fiscal projects to try and recover from their collased bubble in 1990. They have gotten growth spurts every so often but then the stagnation resumes again (just like we got a couple of quarters growth after the Porkulus which ended as soon as all the money was spent.) In the meantime, their public debt has skyrocketed and their debt was recently downgraded by Fitch two notches to A+.

Krugman’s “ideas” do not work.

He wants high speed rail? is that so he can get to his next alien anal probe quicker?

Its too late . There are those that pretend to be Americans that hate American ideas , that look like us , but never quit at their thirst to destroy this country . They wave their pretend flags , yet hate what it stands for . The parts of the freedom that they actually enjoy , they would NEVER spend one drop of their own blood that took to obtain it . I’m glad their hero is finally coming around to the idea of thanking those that gave their lives for all of our freedoms , but then again its an election year .

What can smoke them out ? What exposes them for the Godless hoard that they are ? Wave the Constitution or the Bible and their principles before them and watch their reaction . As with all of us , actions speak louder than words . They hate what is good and LOVE the opposite .

Paul isn’t even original. This idea was already tried. It was called global warming.

There was also an old science fiction story based on this same idea. Pretty sad when you have to plagiarize to form your delusional thoughts.

Maybe Krugman thinks we all forgot who Orson Welles is.

Good point. If NASA puts James Hansen in charge of the search for “life in space” we’ll know what to expect next.

Never happen NASA is too busy trying to prove that muslimes were at the for-front of all scientific discoveries from 700 AC til the present.

It’s also a criminal state of mind.

Might we even say that being a Democrat is a hate crime in itself?

I forsee Bono and Matt Damon doing a remake of War of the Worlds, to try and convince the government to spend the money.

Isn’t this called “calling wolf,” or something?
Call me silly but say they do this – then after that there’s a real disaster.
1. meteor
2. aliens
3. giant volcanos

The government doesn’t even react to it at all; the following results are obvious.
1. Billions die and the sun is blotted out.
2. Earth is destroyed.
3. Olivia gets sacrificed to the dark gods of her own Nazi cult.

Opinions?

Maybe she can get sacrificed first to appease the volcano gods, and prevent all this.

Don’t the volcano gods want virgins?

I think that considering her attitude, she probably is a “born again” virgin, hasn’t gotten any in at least 7 years!

I would never do this as the Volcano god might choke , knowing a reject , or worse , is being offered . Then we would be really screwed . An angry volcano god’s wrath might not be as bad as say Tiger Wood’s ex , but we cannot take that chance .
